• 16 ounces chickpeas (can of, drained and rinsed)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic (pressed or diced)


  1. First, place the chickpeas in a large bowl and mash until they’re mostly broken up.
  2. Next, toss in all the remaining ingredients and mix with clean hands. *The gluten will form everything into a solid dough that is stringy when stretched apart.
  3. Then, divide out and form 8 cutlets into patties.
  4. Pour a little olive oil in a large frying pan and cook for around 5 minutes on each side - or until brown and crispy.
  5. Serve with roasted vegetables and potatoes, green beans, tomatoes or risotta.
